GIVEAWAY: Alimonada - 'Brazilian' jewellery made with love - and a heart of gold

Alimonada is a handcrafted jewellery shop based in Brooklyn, NY. Made with stones originally from Espirito Santo, Brazil, it reveals a beautiful geological characteristic and the natural stones found and mined in the state, which has the largest concentration of different types of natural stone in the world.

With a passion for fashion and accessories, Heidi finds pleasure in making things - seeing and selecting the materials and arranging them in her own way.

I was touched that with every purchase, 10% of the sale is donated to "Casa da Graca" (House of Grace), a temporary shelter for local girls from underprivileged families in Brazil.

  2. All designs are pretty. The main thing which make Alimonad unique is that they are donating some amount also. The humanity lies in her. She is donating at right place. Every big business should do something for the welfare of the society. We all think about our choice but only few think about others.
